FCRC Volunteers

FCRC Volunteer Sign-up

The Battle Ground Public Schools Family and Community Resource Center (FCRC) can provide basic student and family needs only with the robust and active support of volunteers.  All of the basic supplies we assist a family with are also a great way to start a conversation with a family about how they can leave poverty behind.  The FCRC partners with several programs who provide assistance with finding a better job, finding housing, going back to school as an adult, meeting medical needs etc.  These services are offered through the FCRC but several other area resources are also available in the FCRC to assist any family in need in Battle Ground Public Schools.

Please consider volunteering  in an area of interest that may meet your availability. Specific times are determined every year, but this will give you a good idea of what to expect and help us coordinate volunteers.  We are also happy to work with groups large and small. Volunteers 18 and older will need to complete a free background check and mentors will have additional requirements.

Thank you for your interest in supporting our local community.
